49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Richard Sherman, Raheem Mostert, K’Waun Williams, others

Nov 11, 2020 at 2:08 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and provided several injury updates. The team is preparing to face the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

  • RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) won't play against the Saints. Shanahan hopes to have him back for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams — after the bye.
  • RB Tevin Coleman (knee) won't play either. Shanahan also hopes to have him back for Week 12.
  • LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) also won't play this weekend.
  • WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will not practice today. The team will re-evaluate him tomorrow.
  • CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) will be out "for a while." Injured reserve is a possibility (see below).
  • WR Trent Taylor (back) won't practice today.
  • WR Kendrick Bourne remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • CB Richard Sherman (calf) will practice for the first time since before Week 1.

Today, the 49ers placed safety Jaquiski Tartt on injured reserve due to a turf toe injury.

Shanahan was asked if injured reserve was being considered for Williams, who is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. There is just one problem. The cornerback has already been on injured reserve once this season.

"We don't know yet because he can't go on IR-to-return twice," Shanahan explained. "So he already had that once in the year, so we're trying to evaluate, see how he goes. It's a high-ankle sprain, so that's usually four to six weeks, which will lead him up towards the end of the year. We're not going to put him on if he can't come back because once we do put him on, he can't (return).

"We're just trying to wait that out and see how he reacts here over the next week or so, and to see what our options are with the rest of our roster."

Regarding Sherman, Shanahan hopes to have his veteran cornerback back in time for Week 12 against the Rams.

"I know Doctor Sherm thinks he's got a chance this week," Shanahan added. "And I've been around him enough that that's why I don't count him out on that. But my goal is hopefully to get him back by the Rams. But I won't rule him out for anything because of what his prognosis is."

The San Francisco 49ers' streak of second-half shutouts continues. Although, it looked like that was in jeopardy a couple of times in the second half. Another streak ended after Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan couldn't say, "No injuries to report," something he had done in the previous three games. The 49ers lost two key players in the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell and guard Spencer Burford exited with injuries. Mitchell was ruled out with a knee injury, while Burford was sidelined due to an ankle injury. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell may have suffered another MCL sprain of his knee, but it's not believed to be as severe as the one he sustained in Week 1. However, he will likely miss some time.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited all week during practices as the team prepares for its Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. When head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday, rattling off the names of those who would not practice or be limited, Samuel's name was absent. It wasn't until the official practice participation report was released that the wideout's injury was revealed to reporters.
